Heaven is a half dome

21 Mar

Oh you two… I can’t express my jealousy at your upcoming honeymoon but I’m also very excited for you!

Here are a couple pics of Yosemite to pump you up a bit more!

Yosemite falls from the valley floor...

On the way up... so beautiful and what a workout

Unbelievable feeling of making it to the top and seeing the majestic views of Yosemite from up there

Another mind blowingly beautiful and long hike this time up to Half Dome

At the top, going across to Half Dome looks like desert until you go a bit further...

Snow!! In the middle of summer when the valley floor is about 25degs... it's that high

Posing in our fancy pad, note three walls and canvas door to protect us from bears!

It was loads of fun and had a campfire (contained as a barbecue) in front so we roasted snaggers and sweet potato for dinner and marshmallows for dessert. So fun!

But I’ve heard really good things about The Awahnee and from the outside it looked gorgeous. Check out the website pics http://www.yosemitepark.com/ahwahnee-photo-gallery.aspx

Lots of people get married in the very classic dining hall there.

Well I hope this gets you pumped and planning all the hikes you can… make sure you do Yosemite Falls and Half Dome even though they’ll each take you all day, you’ll need lots of snacks and a packed lunch, but when you get to the top and see the sights and a patriotic American singing Star Spangled Banner with tears in his eyes like we did… you’ll be thanking us for making you do it.

Get amongst it!!
